About Us

About the Band

The Oxford Community Band is a group of individuals from Southwest Ohio that share a passion for music. From music teachers to accountants, and high school students to more “experienced” individuals, the OCB has a wide variety of demographics. We pride ourselves on not holding auditions and producing great music with few rehearsals. With up to 7 performances each year, the community band performs music at a high school class B level.

If you are interested in joining the Oxford Community Band, please contact the director, Bob Eckhardt.
